Design and manufacturing of the ITER ECRH Upper Launcher mirrors

Four of the 16 ITER upper port plugs will be devoted to electron cyclotron resonance heating (ECRH) in order to control magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instabilities [1,2]. In order to achieve the stabilisation of the neoclassical tearing modes (NTM) and sawtooth oscillation, a deposition of a very localized and peaked current density profile over a broad poloidal steering range is required.
